Do you offer discounts to military veterans? Would you like to? Do you offer a service for housebound folks or those with low income? Not sure how to officially identify a veteran? Let me know and I can educate you and your staff on how to do that. Would you like them to know about services you can provide in the local area of Walsh County? Send me a note ( Give me a call (352-5030). Message me on Facebook (@WalshCountyVeterans). I want to know, so I can help connect local veterans who need them to any goods you sell or services you provide. We live in a small community, but if there is one thing I know, it is that if you assume everyone knows, most people probably don't. I'll be the first to admit I live in Walsh County and don't know about a lot of the small events that happen from town to town. I'm a busy work- ing person that doesn't get out much. That is why I love it when a busi- ness creates a Facebook page and actually posts updates. I also like when they advertise in the local papers. It shows that they still want to reach out to those of us that may be clueless that they are having a sale or a food special on a certain night. Wouldn't it be great if you could add, "Military Veterans/Active Duty Soldiers receive 5% or 10% off'? Let's get in the know together. Thank you for being a small business owner and a local service provider.

DRAYTON, N.D. -- Drayton, N.D hosted a blood drive with Unit- ed Blood Services on Junel4 at Drayton Public School, which helped collect a total of 37 units of blood and one unit of plasma for pa- tients in need. A total of 36 individuals volun- teered to donate blood and 28 indi- viduals.were able to donate at the United Blood Services blood drive on June 14. A total of 10 donors also came forward to donate Power Red Cells (2RBC) which collects two units of red blood cells while re- turning platelets, plasma and a saline solution back to the donor. There were four persons who vol- unteered for the first time. United Blood Services expressed their gratitude to the Drayton com- munity, as well as those who assisted the day of the drive: Sharon Gun- derstrom, Patti Thompson, Murphy Thompson, Linda Johnston, Matt Rarick, Jamie Rarick, Lindsay Pollestad, Joanna Lorenzen, and Greg Pollestad. UBS strives to keep a 5-day supply of every blood type on the shelf at all times to be able to meet the needs of patients across the re- gion. Donations from O-negative donors, the universal blood type, are especially important this time of year due to increased accidents and trau- ma cases. United Blood Services is the only blood provider to nearly 70 hos- pitals across the region. The blood supply is dependent on selfless do- nations from volunteer donors to en- sure the lifesaving needs of the re- gion are met. About 30 percent of UBS's blood supply goes to cancer patients across the region and one in seven people entering the hospital will need blood. Those relying on blood in the region receive that lifesaving blood from UBS. Donors can make a convenient appointment to give blood at or by calling (877)827-4376. With each donation, donors receive a flee total cholesterol test and cam points in United Blood Services' Hero in Me rewards pro- gram. Blood donation takes about an hour from check-in to refreshments. Donors can save about 20 minutes by completing their Fast Track Health History the day they donate orr www'unitedbl dservices' rg PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The I The summertime festivity will women of the parish of St. Mary's be held at the St. Mary's Catholic in Park River will host a Summer Church Parish Hall located at 505 Salad and Deli Sandwich Lunch- Park Street East on Hwy 17. eon and Bake Sale on Monday, Hope to see you Monday, July July 30 from 11 am to 1 pm.30!
